troubled lenders. we have steve sedgwick following the story in thmadrid, but firs out to stefane in paris. it sounds like there will be a contrast with the spanish budget. it's tax hikes that seem to be the focus. >> in france it will be focus on tax hikes. that's the decision about to be announced by the french government. basically 20 billion euros in additional taxes in the budget for the next year. and only 10 billion euros in spending cuts. that's the plan to reach the deficit target. that's the best case scenario because the budget is based on a growth assumption of 0.8% which seems to be far too optimistic. plenty of private economists believe the french economy won't grow more than 0.3% next year. in that case, the government will need to find an additional 5 feweuro of spending cuts on t of what will be announced today. the budget will include one very symbolic measure, new tax rate of 75% for people earning more than 1 million euros per year. it will be implemented only on around 2,000 people and it will raise only 200 million euros. so that's a symbolic measure that the p
